September entertainment package packed

Osborne Bay Pub’s Sunday jazz returns alongside regular Friday and Saturday lineup

The entertainment package at the Osborne Bay Pub in Crofton during September is jam-packed.

With the return of Pat’s House of Jazz on Sundays arranged by the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society and the regular Berry Music Company offerings on Fridays and Saturdays, the weekends are filled with a wide variety of music to suit all tastes.

Features at the pub in September include appearances by the Deep Sea Gypsies on Saturday, Sept. 14 and Daniel Wesley on Friday, Sept. 20.

The Deep Sea Gypsies play an original innovative combination of 1960s psychedelic blues rock and ’70s southern rock mixed with elements of funk and soul.

Wesley gives an intimate solo acoustic performance. The West Coast singer/songwriter’s ninth full-length album is called Beach Music.

The month begins with a weekend doubleheader following the Labour Day weekend. Mark Crissinger performs solo Sept. 6 with his repertoire of original new blues and roots music while the funk-soul band Groove Kitchen appears Sept. 7 with a five-piece band of veteran musicians.

In the latter half of the month, the South Island Rhythm Kings are on agenda Sept. 21 for a CD release party; Big Pacific brings its incredible electric blues-rock sound to the pub Sept. 27 and popular Row of Crowz are on stage Sept. 28.

Pat’s House of Jazz returns to its 2-4 p.m. Sunday time slot with the Gabriel Palatchi Trio Sept. 8. Palatchi was born in Argentina and spent his formative years in Buenos Aires studying classical piano and being mentored by some of the greats in blues, tango, jazz and Latin jazz.

Canus Hot Jazz Band performs Sept. 15, the Sam Kirmayer Trio Sept. 22 and Angela Verbrugge Sept. 29 to get jazz fans back into full swing again.
